Teacher in Charge: Mr E. MeadRecommended Prior Learning
It is recommended that students wishing to take Level 1 Music have completed the Year 10 Full Year Music course or have had lessons on an instrument for a minimum of two years. This is because performance standards are based on students having already learned their instrument (voice is an instrument) for two years.
Students who have not completed the Year 10 Full Year Music course should contact the Head of Music before selecting this course.
This course is designed to give students who can play an instrument, the opportunity to develop their performance and composition skills.
Performances (both solo and group) are organised throughout the year to allow students to demonstrate their skills in front of different audiences, and assessors. Students will also have the opportunity to write their own music and record it, develop their aural (ear training) skills, and analyse musical works.
Music builds skills such as collaboration, creative thinking, self-discipline, and perseverance that students can apply to all areas of their lives, as well as to other subjects that they study. Music can give students a lifelong creative outlet and indicates to future employers a well-rounded student with good interpersonal skills.Career Pathways
